People I knew worked for Disney for the experience and a chance to live in Florida, NEVER for the money.I will give you this, if you are honed into a specific career then the DCP might not be for you but most college students are not. However to think serving popcorn at a local movie theater is the same to serving popcorn at Epcot to a hiring manger is laughable. Maybe in the immediate area surrounding DW but to the rest of the country there is a huge difference. Disney is the largest entertainment company in the world and one of the highest regarded as far as customer service. Non of my fellow CPs or myself has ever had Disney not come up in job interviews. It is always a topic of conversation in those interviews and it’s usually always questions about customer service and specifically about training programs we went through. Companies spend huge sums of money to send their employees to the Disney Institute and these are very similar to programs you are exposed to.
